This round is capped off with Hornady’s 35 grain XTP, a jacketed hollow point projectile that is optimized for self-defense. The XTP’s jacket is special in three ways. First, it is given symmetrical serrations that enable it to promote wide, uniform expansion, even at the 25 ACP’s lower velocities. Second, its thicknesses vary throughout its entire length to fine tune the rate of expansion even further. Last, the XTP’s jacket covers the lead in its core, helping to prevent feeding issues in a semi-auto as well as damage to the nose cavity during penetration. The XTP’s swaged lead core also aids in uniform expansion, and along with Hornady’s signature concentric jacket possesses the rotational stability that accurate shooting demands.
